Gluefinger @Martin Oostrom: Correct again. We're only in it for the glue fumes. If we weren't we would all be buildung Artesania Latina wood models with white glue (which, BTW, would not require sanding to remove).

The Lancaster will probably be the only WWII kit which WNW is doing for the upcoming future.
Peter Jackson and the Lancaster are not a new topic at all and have kind of a history ;)

And btw what did you expect from a kit which has a development time for over eight years now.

The raise in price of Revell kits over the last couple of years has been substantial and above average. Look, for example, at what they are charging for their recent re-release of what is essentially an Eduard "Weekend" Mig-21: MiG-21 SMT (Revell 03915, 1:48) .
But it seems part of the money goes into the financing of adventurous new kits!

Alexander G. It seems to be the case especially for their Eduard re-boxes. I noticed that when they charged 40€ for the re-release of the Il-2 in 1:48.
27. November 2018 at 11:42:34
Gluefinger But that Eduard kit was a re-boxing of the Accurate Miniatures kit, so Revell's is a Re-reboxing, which is what makes it expensive... ;)
27. November 2018 at 14:00:30
wilky With the resurgence in modelling the suppliers know that they can charge more.
Simple economics of demand.
My main hobby of slot cars is in decline and retailers are having to compete for sales and thus prices are declining
27. November 2018 at 23:09:50
Augie Sub £35 for the SMT seems quite fair to me. *shrugs*
27. November 2018 at 23:41:57
wilky Try living in Australia.
I can't even take advantage of the retailers that are in the Scalemates marketplace because they never ship to Australia.
Kits here cost a fortune
Tried to purchase the new Airfix 1/48 Mustang with RAAF markings and not one of the listed retailers in marketplace ship to Australia
27. November 2018 at 23:48:08
Alexander G. "Simple economics of demand", it is really. Trumpy kits also doubled in prices if not even more in the last few years!
28. November 2018 at 05:58:28
Gluefinger @Augie: Sub £35 for the SMT seems quite fair to me. *shrugs*
Eduard Weekend Mig-21s are currently available for little more than 20 Euros; Revell's will set you back at least 35 Euros.
28. November 2018 at 09:00:56
Gluefinger "Simple economics of demand" is a nice description for the fact that Modelling has become a hobby of old farts with access to sufficient economic resources and the willingness to part with them (I know, I am one of those). ;)

AMK are beginning to seriously p*ss me off with their vapourware campaign for this product.

For months now, they have bee insinuating that the release is just around the corner. See, for example, the thread on Britmodeller, where in November 2016 it was stated by "Martin @ AMK Hobby" that "Release date will be very very soon".

To me, this seems like a plot trying to stop people from buying competitors' products.

Had they been more honest I would have been willing to wait longer, but as it is, I have finally lost all trust in their announcements, and will throw my money in Tamiya's direction. As I will with ICM as they also have a product available that is sort of "announced" by AMK, but, considering the state of the AMK F-14, probably years away...

Mentioned Britmodeller thread:

Gluefinger Unbelievable - more than a year has passed since I wrote my comment above. And still no product in sight. Good thing Tamiya is coming to the rescue with a D now.
19. April 2018 at 09:02:03
Florian Ayers Maybe they're fine tuning the mold to make it perfect. AMK's attention to detail is really superb, so I don't blame them if they want to maintain their high quality standard.

I'm annoyed as well, but I have 100 other models to take care of first. :)
19. April 2018 at 12:57:36
Augie Oh well, plenty of time to build the rest before its released :)
19. April 2018 at 21:59:14
Urban Gardini I'm glad that I haven't pre-ordered the kit...
19. April 2018 at 22:17:04
Mathijs Beenhakker Unbelievable...how long did they take!?....And when they finally release...They got the basic shape wrong...Great way to pile your company into the ground
